Free Sports Game Preview and Prediction: Virginia vs. Duke
Saturday, October 20, 2018 12:30 PM
Play: Point Spread: -7.0/-105 Duke
Virginia knocked off Miami U in a big upset last week, and after that the Cavs and their fans rushed the field like they had won a national championship. Thats what I call irrational exuberance at its best, and now the hungover Cavs will have problems getting up for a team that I have rated above them my power rankings . You have to remember this is the same Virginia team that crapped the bed earlier this season vs struggling Indiana football program and lost 20-16, so its not like their national championship contenders or anything. Meanwhile,Duke rebounded from its first loss of the season against Virginia Tech by surgically dismantling the Yellow Jackets option offense in a impressive looking 28-14 conference road victory. Im becoming a believer in the Duke football program that has beaten Army, Northwestern, Baylor this season and Im saying they have to be respected today on a TD or less line at home. VIRGINIA has failed to cover 18 of their L/24 after covering the spread in 4 out of their last 5 games.
